Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Angelomorphic Pneumatology contains the table of contents, acknowledgements, abbreviations, and introduction. The introduction presents an overview of the book, which brings together scholarly research in three apparently distinct areas. The first is what has been styled angelomorphic pneumatology, that is, the use of angelic imagery in early Christian discourse about the Holy Spirit. The second is the pneumatology of Clement of Alexandria, a topic generally acknowledged as ripe for research. The third is Clements Eclogae propheticae, Excerpta ex Theodoto, and Adumbrationeswritings that have until now been allowed only a minor role in the reconstruction of this authors theological thought. The doctrine of the Spirit is fluid in the second century, and one must adopt a wider perspective, one that takes into consideration the frequent intersection and overlap between pneumatology, christology, and angelology, labeled in scholarship as spirit christology, binitarianism, and angelomorphic pneumatology.

Keywords: angelomorphic pneumatology; christology; Clement of Alexandria; Holy Spirit
